It’s not too late to register for the PMC-Sierra Science Fair Fun Run on Sunday May 31st.
The Fun Run is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year and continues to build BC’s future by supporting science and technology education. All proceeds from this event go to The Dr. Michael Smith Science Fair Endowment to support the promotion and development of Science Fair programs throughout the province.
The Fun Run takes place at TELUS World of Science and is the largest timed 5K race in BC and is one of the technology industry’s biggest fundraising events.
“Without funds from events like the PMC-Sierra Science Fair Fun Run, 60,000 students who participate in local fairs across BC each year would not have the opportunity to advance their projects and develop important skills like entrepreneurship, creativity and confidence,” says Patti Leigh, executive director of the Science Fair Foundation of BC. “Given the economic climate, it’s even more important to invest in our future, and we’re doing that by helping students become the great minds that will drive BC’s innovation economy into the future.”
PMC-Sierra has been the Fun Run’s title sponsor since it began in 2000.
